Ask Liz! > Bacne

Hi Ms. Liz!
I just read your post on L'Oreal shampoo and conditioner and I noticed in the comments that some tend to get back-acne (I unfortunately get it too). My question is how can we treat and prevent getting acne? I don't really hear much about products and methods that treat bacne. We always hear how to take care of the face but how about the skin on the rest of the body?

Well I used to have back acne too when I was kid, I didn't do anything much to it because I didn't care. Though I frequently go to the beach and kinda help me dry out my acne (salt water)

But there are products out there that can reduce or prevent back acne. Try looking at Celeteque back acne spray. I myself havent tried it but my friend did but it didnt remove fully the acne but reduced te appearance andthe amount :-)

I see
I don't really mind it it that much but I'm prone to scarring and my bacne usually ends up giving me dark spots :(
I'll try using the Celeteque spray to minimize it
Thanks for the info Ms. Maggie!

Hi Ysabelle I hope you already treated your bacne but I agree with Maggie that Go to the beach and have your back submerged within the salt water of the beach for about 10 minutes. Sit in the sun for 10-15 minutes. The sun will dry out the pimples. Do not do this for longer though because if you get burnt, it will make your acne a lot worse. Repeat this process a few times more and you will notice results within the first two days

Wear Loose Clothes, Try changing your laundry detergent to a milder formula,

Make a natural exfoliating scrub. This will help remove dead skin cells that can clog pores and cause breakouts. Squeeze one grapefruit into a bowl with 1 1/2 cups of white sugar and 1/2 cup of coarse sea salt. Massage into the affected areas, then pat dry.

Good luck!

Hi Ysabelle, i used to have bacne too and any mild drugstore body scrub can help with that. Our back needs exfoliation. Try Beauty Treats body scrubs from Watsons, they are usually on buy1take1 promo. And I agree with the Celeteque back acne spray. I haven't tried that personally as my bacne are easily cured with mild body scrub, but other products from Celeteque are working very fine for me so i guess their back acne spray won't disappoint. Good luck!

I had bacne too during my elem-highschool days (syempre wapakels pa noon sa katawan hihi) basically good hygiene will do the trick in the long run. Like the rest of your body, don't forget to scrub your back when bathing. A loofah or sponge will do! Sometimes we unconsciously ignore cleaning our backs but its the part where we usually sweat a lot! Clogged pores may be the culprit so scrub away to remove dead skin cells, dirt, sweat, etc. Try also changing your soap to a mild one :) but if your bacne is quite worrisome or severe, its always best to consult a dermatologist :)

Since reading the above I've tried using Stiefel's Acne-Aid bar soap ( It's really been working well!
